What you need to know about cookie fundraising
The Girl Scouts have made selling cookies a profitable fundraising venture for years, so why not your school, sports team, church or other organizations? One good reason is that they have perfected the art of selling their familiar and much-loved cookies. You’ll be a newcomer to selling cookies.
And in a time when more and more folks are paying attention to their dietary habits and saying no to sugar for themselves and their kids, maybe it’s time to start saying “no” to unhealthy snacks that are being sold to raise money.
Sure, it’s tempting to sell cookies—or cookie dough—and with profits of up to 50% it seems like the profits are just as easy, too. But even at profit percentages that high, you could be selling a whole lot of cookies to meet even modest goals.
Not Your Typical Fundraiser—Not Your Typical Profits
Why keep selling the same old stuff at the same old prices and ending up with the same old results? There’s a better, easier, and more profitable way to achieve success in fundraising and put more dollars in your organization’s coffers.
First, you need to begin with the right product at the right price.
Remember, you are selling to family, friends and neighbors. Most of your sales are to people you know. Why would you sell anything other than a high quality product?
With Yankee Candle Fundraising, your supporters choose from the same well-known, high-quality products they buy everyday. Plus, they can buy them for the same price they find them for in stores or online.
And you get 40% of the profits.
But percentage of profits is just a part of the story. You want to get the most bang out of your fundraiser. At the end of the day, your profit dollars are what you put in the bank, not your profit margin.
For example, you could sell 10 Yankee Candles and make $100 profit. Compare that to how many boxes of cookies you’d need to sell to reach an equal amount of profit for your organization. And instead of hawking cookies in front of the supermarket, with Yankee Candle Fundraising’s website your supporters can shop online from anywhere in the country. They can order directly and easily from the website and the profits go straight to you.
Get off the cookie diet and start making big profits the easy way…with Yankee Candle Fundraising!
